    Vice President Mike Pence will be in Philadelphia Monday to promote the Trump administration's tax-cutting law and campaign for a Pennsylvania senate candidate.

    The "Tax Cuts to Put America First" event hosted by America First Policies, a non-profit started by a group of former Trump advisers that promotes the president's agenda, will take place at the downtown Sheraton Philadelphia at 1:45 p.m.

    Speakers at the event will discuss how the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, signed into law by President Donald Trump, will impact Philadelphia residents as well as the state of Pennsylvania and the U.S.

    After the event, Pence will attend a fundraiser for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Lou Barletta of Pennsylvania at the Union League. Barletta, who is trying to unseat two-term Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, has trailed in campaign cash.

    Demonstrators dressed as characters from the novel-turned-TV series "The Handmaid's Tale" are planning to descend on downtown Philadelphia Monday evening to protest Pence's visit. 

    "The Handmaid's Tale" imagines a future in which women's rights are strictly limited. According to an event page for the protest, organizers say they're opposed to the administration policies on abortion rights, LGBT rights and separating families caught entering the country illegally.
